I know being realistic around here isn't popular but how many people honestly think a tune is coming from them. I'd hope ANY tuners would see a poll like this with a real demand and step up to the plate instead focus(ha)ing on one single tuner.

How many companies stepped up with the 2nd gen Focus?

Tuning was available for the first generation mk1 for almost three years. I would know I was here then as well

I was here back then as well and there were multiple tuners and tuning, not just SCT. I don't post here as often which can be seen by my post count, but I have been here since 04, and all I can say is the negativity now a days is ridiculous.

I had typed up this big response to all the people hating on the possibility of tuners and tuning for the MK3, but what's the point? Back in the day, people were more open about different modifications and tuning their MK1's then today. It just seems that most now are content with throwing some undersized wheels, and plasti-dipping their taillights (no offense) then taking the modifications further.

And for the record, I voted the $400, simply for the fact that is close to what I paid for my first SCT tune on my MK1. IMO the "no" option should never have been included because some people just are not interested in a tune so their opinion should not matter

I have an in-cab tuner for my SuperDuty (PowerStroke) and it cost just over 400-ish. So I voted that, it seems like a reasonable price point to me.

Yes. But then again it doesn't matter what company makes a tune first.

+1.

I just want a tuner. I don't care who makes it, so long as it's a quality product and they have a dealer/local tuner network I have access to. I just recently slapped on my performance parts, and while I gained power, I know there's more left on the table because of a lack of a tune. As someone apart from the 'plastidip-all-of-the-things-LED-strips-everywhere-My-headlamps-give-me-10hp' crowd, I'd love to see more progress.

I did not vote no because I do not want a tuner. I voted no because I won't buy anything from SCT ever again.

I wish Sniper would offer products for the Focus again.
